Why Do I Run?

Hi friends! I am busy prepping for tomorrow’s lululemon run on Summer Streets (8am @ the E. 66th St. store) and the Joint Protection Workshop afterwards @ 9am. Hope to see you there! In the mean time, a poem I have always loved.

WHY DO I RUN? ‘TAIN’T NO MYSTERY–
WANNA HAVE A GOOD MEDICAL HISTORY,
DOCTOR TOLD ME RUNNIN IS GREAT–
HELPS THEM BLOOD CELLS CIRCULATE,
GREAT FOR THE LUNGS,
GREAT FOR THE TICKER,
CAN’T NOTHIN’ GETCHA
IN BETTER SHAPE QUICKER,
FEELS SO HEALTHY, FEELS SO SWEET,
PUMPIN MY ARMS AND FLAPPIN’ MY FEET,
MOLDIN’ MY MUSCLES, FIRMIN’ MY FORM,
PANTIN’ LIKE A PACK MULE,
SWEATIN’ UP A STORM,
KEEPS ME YOUTHFUL,
KEEPS ME LOOSE,
TIGHTENS MY TUMMY
AND SHRINKS MY CABOOSE,
BEATS BEIN’ SLUGGISH, BEATS BEIN’ LAZY–
WHY DO I RUN?

MAYBE I’M CRAZY!

Now go out and run!
